Next up:the establishment of cross-Strait liaison offices

* Following the signing of the cross-Strait service trade pact on June 21, 2013, the attention now shifts onto the establishment of liaison offices on the other side.

* Though both sides would like to conclude negotiations and have the offices operational by yearend, it does not appear particularly encouraging since: (1) sensitive issues concerning jurisdiction have yet to be addressed, and (2) Taiwan’s legislative process could cause unexpected delays.
